Greg Steube Introduces the No Plea Deal with Terrorists Act

At the end of last week, U.S. Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla.. brought out the “No Plea Deal with Terrorists Act.”

The bill will “limit the availability of a plea deal for any person responsible for the terrorist attacks on 9/11“ and “will require the President to direct the Attorney General to refuse any plea deal for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his fellow Al-Qaeda conspirators responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks on America to the extent that such a plea would prevent a public trial and remove the possibility of the death penalty.”

Steube weighed in on Friday on why he introduced the bill.

“More than two decades after the horrific 9/11 hijackings, the trial of the 9/11 orchestrators must deliver justice for the families of nearly 3,000 victims and the survivors,” said Steube. “Allowing Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his accomplices to escape a public trial and capital punishment would represent a complete failure of this administration to hold accountable the terrorists responsible for one of the darkest days in American history. My legislation ensures that the Biden administration does not permit a plea deal for anyone responsible for 9/11. Justice must be served.”

The bill was sent to the U.S. House Judiciary Committee. So far, there are no co-sponsors in the U.S. House and no companion measure in the U.S. Senate.
